This beautiful late 1800's to early 1900's Legras Antique hand blown glass rose bowl is fresh to the market and straight from my personal collection. This beautiful hand blown rose bowl has a quad folded rim, vertical optic ribbing and features beautifully hand painted gold gilt flowers.The rim is further decorated with hand applied gold gilt. Lovely polished pontil on the base and appropriate shelf wear on the base for it's age.
St Denis, Legras and Mt Joye glass were all the same company with various trade names attached. There are also several pieces shown in the identical shape in the wonderful Legras book,''François-Théodore Legras, verrerie artistique et populaire française'' by Marie-Françoise et Jean-François MICHEL, Dominique et Jean VITRAT.
I cannot recommend this book enough for anyone with an interest in Legras, French, or Victorian to Art Deco era Art Glass. This beautiful piece would make a great gift for that special glass collector, or a lovely decorator piece, and it's just in time for the holidays! The Rose bowl measures 4 3/8" with 3 1/2" tall.
